The Honda Racing UK team have enjoyed a solid weekend in Scotland for the fourth round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Knockhill, with Glenn Irwin, Ryo Mizuno, Takumi Takahashi and Tom Neave scoring points across each of the three races aboard the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.
Glenn enjoyed a brace of top 10 finishes in sunny conditions at the 1.27-mile circuit, finishing eighth and sixth after making huge steps forward at the Scottish track. In the final race of the day Glenn was in the mix early on battling with his BSB rivals for a podium finish. Trading places with Tommy Bridewell, Josh Brookes and Danny Buchan, Glenn eventually crossed the line sixth keeping himself in Showdown contention in the overall standings in sixth place with 134 points.
Tom Neave managed to turn his weekend around following a heavy crash in Friday's practice to finish today's races firmly in the points. Building back his confidence in yesterday's opening race, the Superbike rookie had a solid day today finishing 13th in Race 2 and 14th in the final race having come through from 21st.
Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi also made huge improvements across the weekend each claiming championship points in today's races. Having just missed out on the points yesterday Ryo finished 15th in Race 2, but the final race came to an early end after a rose joint on the gear link broke, forcing him to retire on the ninth lap. Meanwhile Takumi came home just outside the points in Race 2 in 16th having come through the pack from 20th on the grid, but it was the last race of the day which gifted a point as he crossed the line in 15th.
There's now a short break in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, which resumes on 22-24 July with round five taking place at Brands Hatch in Kent.
